If the information were not collected, there could be no accounting for the activities of the program. Actual use has been the same as intended use. Burden: Application for Federal Assistance (SF–424) is an OMB form which we do not include in the burden. We have not added to it; however we have deleted the requirements for completion of sections C, D, and E. We received approximately 113 responses. Request for Advance or Reimbursement SF–270 (LM–6) is an OMB form with no agency additions. The number of respondents is approximately 37 and estimated time per response is 30 minutes.

The estimated time per response is 30 minutes and there are approximately 37 respondents.

the applicant/grantee's discretion.

to provide prompt technical assistance to deal with those problems 
identified in the report.

``similar information'' requirement could apply. That form takes the

    Abstract: Except for the FMCS Forms LM-3 and LM-9, the forms under 
consideration herein are either required or recommended in OMB

questionnaire sent only to non-public sector potential grantees and the 
latter a questionnaire sent only to former grantees for voluntary 
completion and submission. The collected information is used by FMCS to 
determine annual applicant suitability, to monitor quarterly grant 
project status, and for on-going program evaluation. If the information 
were not collected, there could be no accounting for the activities of 
the program. Actual use has been the same as intended use.
    Burden: Application for Federal Assistance (SF-424) is an OMB form 
which we do not include in the burden. We have not added to it; however 
we have deleted the requirements for completion of sections C, D, and 
E. We received approximately 113 responses. Request for Advance or 
Reimbursement SF-270 (LM-6) is an OMB form with no agency additions. 
The number of respondents is approximately 37 and estimated time per 
response is 30 minutes. Project Performance (LM-8) had approximately 37 
respondents and the estimated time per response is 30 minutes.

additions. The estimated time per response is 30 minutes and there are 
approximately 37 respondents. FMCS Grants Program Evaluation

the estimated time per response is 60 minutes. The Accounting System 
and Financial Capability Questionnaire (LM-3) has approximately 28
